Chase McLaughlin tied for the most fantasy points in Week 12 but he may not even the 49ers' kicker this Sunday
Week 12 was another week where the leading kickers are ones that are barely owned. For fantasy owners, Dustin Hopkins and Chase McLaughlin had the most fantasy points among all kickers in Week 12. They are both owned in less than 10 percent of fantasy leagues. And in McLaughlin's case, he may be out of a job come Sunday if Robbie Gould is able to return from the quad injury that has sidelined him these past few weeks.
With the bye weeks gone, fantasy owners are likely just going to stick with the kicker they have. That seems to be the best option, given how many extra points and field goals have been missed this season. Keep in mind, though, that it is the time of year to consider kickers who are playing indoors (the wind in the Seattle/Philadelphia game certainly played a factor), but don't get too cute swapping kickers.
